Dear <<First Name>>,

St. John's is offering an at-home wreath project this year. We are equipping St. John’s families with materials to create wreaths as outward and visible signs of God’s Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love coming into the world in the Christ Child. This year, instead of decorating the church with greens, we will hang them on the outside of our beautiful buildings so everyone can see it adorned for the season. We will tie ribbons with events and names of those being recognized on the greens and wreaths.
 

To Make A Wreath:

You can pick up your wreath-making box this Saturday, December 12, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at the 60 Kent Street entrance. First come, first served. We only have 32 boxes of wreath-making materials! One box per household.
  • Please wear masks when you arrive at the 60 Kent Street Entrance.
  • Please pop your trunk for one of our holiday elves to bring your wreath-making box out to put in your car. This contact-free exchange is to ensure we all stay safe during the pandemic.
  • Here is a link to an instructional video on wreath making if your family would like guidance
You can return your wreaths at the Kent Street entrance on Tuesday, December 15, 3:30-5pm  or Wednesday, December 16, 4:30-6:30pm. Please contact me at cyf@stjohnsstpaul.org if you have any questions or concerns surrounding this project. 
 

To Donate: 

Honor a friend or family member, give in memory of a departed loved one, or in thanksgiving for a special event, with a gift towards the cost of the Christmas Greens. Click here to donate. To have a ribbon made, please make your donation by December 17.

In this turbulent time, hanging wreaths created by our community and adorned with special names and dates, side by side outside our church, will remind us that we stand together this holiday season and that we are not alone. 

Best Holiday Wishes,
Abbie Mitchell, intern with Children, Youth, and Family Ministry

Queer and genderqueer, Emily is committed to building communities of faith that dismantle fear and hate, affirm LGBTQ+ people, and confront racial injustice.
